    Thank u for being so blunt. I asked him that I forgot to mention they r into zombies and day of the dead kind of stuff. So I'm thinking she will love the prop. I spoke with him a few moments ago and he said she will be so excited to have something like that.

    Corpsesnight started a thread Prop Showcase: Breast cancer story in Halloween Props
    Well a good friend of mine at work had informed me that his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. He had been upset for a few days and I decided to ask him what she was into (hobbies ect..) not knowing him and his wife were Halloween lovers as I am. So I decided to build a prop for her. The wife and I worked on it for a few days and finally finished. He has no idea I am makeing the prop for her. I would like to know what you guys think of it. Be up front with me about it. Thanks guys

    Mr_Chicken replied to a thread Electronic/Software: projector question in Halloween Props
    I did a segment on Fright Radio recently on projection effect tips (incl. choosing a projector) that you may find useful. I'm linking you to everything on my blog with "projector" in it, because there are other videos and posts that have good info and suggestions there, too. http://chickenhaunt.blogspot.com/search?q=projector

    And when everything was set and cured, I demolded! Into the mold, after a few passes of parfilm, I brushed a 2-part expanding rigid polyfoam. I only need enough to make the thing hold its shape, and the weight of the globe. Once THAT set, I demolded to find a pretty darn good first casting.

    Thanks Dave! On to Phase 2: Molding and Casting! So, I glued the sculpture to an 18" tile to prepare for molding (typically people use melamine board, but I couldn't find any a reasonable size, and this was only a couple bucks). A gave it three coats of clear spray paint, and one pass of Ultra 4 Epoxy Parfilm, a release agent that is paintable, meaning it won't leave residue on the mold (and later, when I use it in the mold to release the castings, it won't leave residue on the...

    See, I only want to sculpt each of the little critters once, so I'll be molding and casting duplicates to stick around the base. I laid warm clay over the outlines, and carved it into shape as it cooled Quick and dirty molds were made in LifeForm silicone (because it is platinum based and therefore will not interfere with the later platinum silicone, and also because it is very quick setting, but mainly because I had it handy)

    How detailed do you want to be? For a really quick spine buildup, I made a long worm of super sculpey and twisted it around a wire so it looked like a rope. Then I went along and pinched out the pointy parts. Bam. Spine. Not anatomically correct, but looks good enough. The little dino below. I'e also made model magic vertebrae when I needed to cover up the post for my 3-axis skull. Just wrapped individual worms for each vertebra. Pinch into shape. Next one. Could work pretty well...
